I am in the midst of exam prep and administration. This always seems to take longer than I think each year… I want to add a different story, the kids want a different song. Sorry my posting has been a bit sparse; however, I wanted to summarize a few of my previous posts on exams and add a few new ideas to help you!
Here is how I differentiate on my final exam.
I give each class a study guide. Here is my Spanish II Final Study Guide as an example.
Each year, I give my students the following treats and notes for their exam.
I use some of these games to review as well. This year, I also found Jenga in the $3 bin at Target! I put numbers on each one piece and printed out different sheets with questions for different classes. Thanks Creative Language Class for the idea! This was also a perfect activity after their math exam.
Finally, my classes have study hall time where I roam. Although my kids have plenty of online practice via Haiku and Zondle, I like to make a crossword puzzle using Puzzlemaker. They can check the answers by themselves.
Good luck and happy exams!
